PLEASE KEEP THIS MANUAL
PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep these precautions in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock,
short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or
modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts.
If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and
have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into
any openings.
• Use the specified adaptor (PA-6 or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha)
only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or
overheating.
• Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the
outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may
have accumulated on it.
• If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a
sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or
smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power
switch, disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the
instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy
objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or
roll anything over it.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord.
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating
in the outlet.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms.
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the
power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum. Also, be sure to set the volumes of all
components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls
while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold
or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to
prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal components.
• Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions,
radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect proper
operation of the other products.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do
not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do
not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
• Use only the stand/rack specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand
or rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to
the internal components or result in the instrument falling over.
• Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
■SAVING USER DATA
• Always save data to a floppy disk frequently, in order to help prevent the
loss of important data due to a malfunction or user operating error.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.

accompaniment style — with the touch of a single button.
(→ Page 44)
• The advanced Groove function gives you the power to
customize the preset styles of the PSR-740 by changing
the basic “feel” of the rhythm and accompaniment patterns.
(PSR-740) (→ Page 45)

up to sixteen independent tracks. (→ Page 92)
* To quickly and easily mold your musical ideas into
complete songs, use the Quick Recording method.
(→ Page 94)

(→ Pages 98-105)
Organ Flutes (PSR-740)
• This special function not only gives you a full set of rich and
luscious organ sounds, it also lets you create your own

performance environments, such as a concert hall or a
night club. (→ Page 50)

Important Features
* Chorus enriches the voices by making them sound
warmer and thicker — as if several instruments were
playing together at the same time. (→ Page 52)
* The DSP effects let you process the sound in special,
unusual ways — such as applying distortion or tremolo to
a specific part. (The PSR-640 has one DSP system; the
PSR-740 features three DSP systems that can be used
simultaneously.) (→ Pages 53-55)
* Harmony/Echo lets you enhance your right-hand melodies with a variety of harmony and echo effects. (→ Page
56)
* Master EQ (on the PSR-740) gives you fine control over
the overall sound by letting you adjust the tone in five
separate frequency bands. (→ Page 59)
Disk Drive
• The PSR-740/640 also features a built-in disk drive that lets
you save all your important original data (such as User
songs, User styles, User Multi Pads, Registration Memory,
etc.) to floppy disk for future recall. (→ Page 65)
Vocal Harmony (PSR-740)
• The amazing Vocal Harmony feature (on the PSR-740)
automatically produces backup vocal harmonies for lead
vocals that you sing into a microphone. You can even
change the gender of the harmony voices — for example,
letting you add female backup to your own male voice (or
vice versa). (→ Page 82)
MIDI
• MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a worldwide
standard interface that allows various electronic music
instruments, computers and other devices to communicate
with each other. The MIDI features let you seamlessly
integrate the PSR-740/640 into a variety of systems and
applications:

PSR-740/640 for your specific MIDI system/application.
(→ Page 128)
Panel logos
The logos printed on the PSR-740/640 panel indicate standards/formats it supports and special features it includes.
GM System Level 1
“GM System Level 1” is an addition to the MIDI standard which guarantees that any data conforming to the standard will play accurately on any GM-compatible tone generator or synthesizer
from any manufacturer.
XG
XG is a new Yamaha MIDI specification which significantly expands and improves on the GM
System Level 1 standard with greater voice handling capacity, expressive control, and effect
capability while retaining full compatibility with GM. By using the PSR-740/640’s XG voices, it
is possible to record XG-compatible song files.
XF
The Yamaha XF format enhances the SMF (Standard MIDI File) standard with greater functionality and open-ended expandability for the future. The PSR-740/640 is capable of displaying lyrics
when an XF file containing lyric data is played.
Vocal Harmony
Vocal Harmony employs state-of-the-art digital signal processing technology to automatically add
appropriate vocal harmony to a lead vocal line sung by the user. Vocal Harmony can even change
the character and gender of the lead voice as well as the added voices to produce a wide range of
vocal harmony effects.
DOC
The DOC voice allocation format provides data playback compatibility with a wide range of
Yamaha instruments and MIDI devices, including the Clavinova series.
Style File Format
The Style File Format — SFF — is Yamaha’s original style file format which uses a unique
conversion system to provide high-quality automatic accompaniment based on a wide range of
chord types. The PSR-740/640 uses the SFF internally, reads optional SFF style disks, and creates
SFF styles using the Style Recording feature.

Setting Up
This section contains information about setting up your PSR-740/640 and preparing to play.
Be sure to go through this section carefully before turning the power on.
Power supply connections
1
Make sure that the STANDBY/ON switch of the
PSR-740/640 is set to STANDBY.
2
Connect the optional AC adaptor (PA-6 or other
adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to
the power supply jack.
3
Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
When turning the power OFF, simply reverse the
procedure.
CAUTION
• Never interrupt the power
supply (e.g. unplug the AC
adaptor) during any PSR740/640 record operation!
Doing so can result in a
loss of data.
WARNING
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-6
AC Power Adaptor (or
other adaptor specifically
recommended by Yamaha)
to power your instrument
from the AC mains. The
use of other adaptors may
result in irreparable
damage to both the
adaptor and the PSR-740/
640.
• Unplug the AC Power
Adaptor when not using
the PSR-740/640, or during
electrical storms.
• Recorded data is retained in
memory even when the
STANDBY switch is turned
off if an AC adaptor is
connected. For details, see
page 159.
Connecting a footswitch
■ FOOT SWITCH jack
The sustain function lets you produce a natural sustain as you play by pressing a
footswitch. Plug an optional Yamaha FC4 or FC5 footswitch into this jack and use it to
switch sustain on and off. The footswitch connected to this jack can also be set to
replicate the functions of some panel buttons, doing things like starting and stopping
accompaniment (page 137).
• Be sure that you do not
press the footswitch while
turning the power on. If you
do, the ON/OFF status of the
footswitch will be reversed.
• When the sustain or
sostenuto pedal functions
are being used (page 137),
some voices may sound
continuously or have a long
decay after the notes have
been released while the
pedal is held.
■ FOOT VOLUME jack
Connecting an optional Yamaha FC7 foot controller lets you use your foot to change
the volume as you play the PSR-740/640 (expression function). The foot controller
connected to this jack can also be set to replicate the functions of the main volume
controls, such as accompaniment or song volume (page 138).
12
10
Setting Up
Audio equipment connections
■ AUX OUT R and L/L+R jacks
The rear-panel AUX OUT R and L/L+R jacks deliver the output of the PSR-740/640
for connection to a keyboard amplifier, stereo sound system, a mixing console, or tape
recorder. If you will be connecting the PSR-740/640 to a monaural sound system, use
only the L/L+R jack. When a plug is inserted into the L/L+R jack only, the left- and
right-channel signals are combined and delivered via the L/L+R jack so you don’t lose
any of the PSR-740/640 sound (use phone plugs).
CAUTION
• Connect the PSR-740/640
to external equipment only
after turning off power for
all devices. To prevent
damage to the speakers,
set the volume of the
external devices at the
minimum setting before
connecting them. Failure
to observe these cautions
may result in electric
shock or equipment
damage.
Stereo System
■ PHONES jack
A standard pair of stereo headphones can be plugged in here for private practice or
late-night playing. The internal stereo speaker system is automatically shut off when a
pair of head phones is plugged into the PHONES jack.
Do not listen with the headphones at high volume for long periods of time. Doing so
may cause hearing loss.
Connecting a microphone (PSR-740)
■ MIC/LINE IN jack
The PSR-740 includes a microphone/line input jack into which just about any standard
microphone or line-level source with a 1/4" phone plug can be plugged (a dynamic
microphone with an impedance of 250 ohms is recommended). The microphone or line
input can be used with the PSR-740’s vocal harmony function (pages 82). The panel
MIC/LINE switch should be set according to the type of source used and the INPUT
VOLUME control can be used to adjust the level of the microphone or line input
signal. The SIGNAL and OVER indicators on the panel aid in setting the ideal input
level: the green SIGNAL indicator should light when an input signal is present, but if
the red OVER indicator lights the level should be reduced by using the INPUT VOLUME control, and if this is not sufficient, by reducing the level of the source signal
itself.
• The Yamaha MZ106s
microphone is recommended
for use with the PSR-740.
• The level of the microphone
sound may vary considerably
according to the type of
microphone used.
• Turn the INPUT VOLUME
control all the way down
when connecting or
disconnecting a microphone.
• Placing a microphone which
is connected to the PSR-740
too close to the PSR-740
speakers (or those of an
external sound system
connected to the
PSR-740) can cause
feedback. Adjust the
microphone position and the
INPUT VOLUME level or
MASTER VOLUME control
level if necessary, so that
feedback does not occur.

electricity is still flowing to
the instrument at the
minimum level. When you
are not using the PSR-740/
640 for a long time, make
sure you unplug the AC
power adaptor from the
wall AC outlet.

Basic Operation
Menu Selection
For certain operations on the PSR-740/640 (such as selecting voices, demo songs and
styles), you’ll need to select different menus in the display.
For example, the display below (for selecting the function) appears when you press the
[FUNCTION] button.
In this case you can select the desired function by turning the data dial or move the
cursor by pressing the [+/YES]/[-/NO] buttons.
Rotating the data dial to the right
(clockwise) moves the cursor

17
19
Basic Operation
Changing (Editing) Values
This section shows you how to set numeric values on the PSR-740/640, such as voice
number, song/style number and various parameters. Input the values by using the
number buttons [1]-[0] or the [+/YES]/[-/NO] buttons.
Number buttons [1]-[0]
described below.
Rotating the data dial
to the right (clockwise)
increases the value,
while rotating it to the
left (counter-clockwise) decreases it.
Pressing the [+/YES] button increases the displayed
value by 1. Pressing the [-/NO] button decreases the
displayed value by 1. Pressing and holding either button
causes a continuous increase and decrease.
For items that have initial default values, pressing the
[+/YES] and the [-/NO] buttons together at the same time
will return the setting to the initial value.
Numeric entry
The explanations here apply only to numbers that have a maximum of three digits, such
as those for voices and styles.
• Entering one- or two-digit numbers
One- or two-digit voice numbers can be entered with leading zeroes: e.g. “12” can be
entered as “012” by pressing the [0], [1] and [2] buttons in sequence.
• One- or two-digit numbers
can also be entered without
leading zeroes.
To select number “12,” for
example, simply press the [1]
button and then the [2]
button. The bars below the
number on the display will
flash for a few seconds, and
then disappear when the
selected number has been
recognized by the PSR-740/
640.
• On some occasions, “- - -”
may appear in the parameter
value part of the display.
This indicates that the
parameter is unavailable or
cannot be changed (due to
the current panel settings).
• Entering three-digit numbers
The number buttons can be used to directly enter the number of the desired voice,
thereby immediately selecting that voice without having to step through a number
of other voices. To select voice number 106, for example, press the [1], [0] and [6]
number buttons in sequence.

Transpose
This function allows the overall pitch of the PSR-740/640 to be transposed up
or down by a maximum of one octave in semitone increments.
1
2
Press the [TRANSPOSE] button.
• The Transpose function
cannot be applied when a
drum kit is the selected voice
(page 31).
• Press the [+/YES] and [-/NO]
buttons simultaneously to
instantly reset the transpose
value to “0.”
• The new TRANSPOSE value
will take effect from the next
key played.
Set the transposition.
Use the data dial, the [+/YES] button, the [-/NO] button or the number buttons
[1]-[0].
• Minus values can be entered
by using the number buttons
while holding the [-/NO]
button.
Pitch Bend Wheel
Use the PSR-740/640 pitch bend wheel to bend notes up (roll the wheel away
from you) or down (roll the wheel toward you) while playing the keyboard. The
pitch bend wheel is self-centering and will automatically return to normal pitch
when released.
• The maximum pitch bend
range can be set via the
Pitch Bend Range function in
the Utility function group
(page 139).
Modulation Wheel (PSR-740)
The Modulation function applies a vibrato effect to notes played on the keyboard (R1, R2, L voices). Moving the MODULATION wheel all the way
towards yourself minimizes the depth of the effect, while rotating it away from
yourself increases it.
• In order to avoid accidentally
applying modulation when
you don’t intend to, set the
depth at its minimum setting.
• You can also assign other
functions to the MODULATION Wheel (page 139).

Organ Flutes (PSR-740)
The Organ Flutes function lets you create your own original organ voices, just as on a traditional organ,
by increasing and decreasing the flute footages, and adding percussive sounds.
Your original organ voice is stored to voice number 761 (Organ Flutes) for selecting and playing.
■ Parameters
● Organ Type
This determines the type of organ sound or tone generation to be simulated:
Sine or Vintage. The vibrato-enhanced variations provide different modulation
effects.
Settings:
• SINE1
• SINE2
• SINE3
• SINE4
• VINTAGE1
• VINTAGE2
• VINTAGE3
• VINTAGE4
● Vibrato Speed
This determines the speed of the vibrato effect (when one of the vibratoenhanced Organ Types is selected).
● Attack Mode
This determines how the attack (or percussive) sound is applied to the organ
flutes: First or Each. When this is set to FIRST, the attack sound will only be
applied to the first note in a chord or a held group of notes. When this is set to
EACH, the attack sound will be applied equally to all notes.
● Attack Footage
This determines the level of each volume in the percussive portion of the voice.
Footage settings are 4', 2-2/3', and 2'.
● Length
This determines the decay of the attack sound, or how long the attack portion of
the sound sustains. The higher the value, the longer the decay.
● Response
This parameter affects the sustain portion of the organ flutes, increasing or
decreasing the response time of the initial swell and release, based on the
FOOTAGE parameter (below). The higher the value, the slower the swell and
release.
● Footage
The footage settings determine the basic sound of the organ flutes.
The term “footage” is a reference to the sound generation of traditional pipe
organs, in which the sound is produced by pipes of different lengths (in feet).
The longer the pipe, the lower the pitch of the sound. Hence, the 16' setting
determines the lowest pitched component of the voice, while the 1' setting
determines the highest pitched component. The higher the value of the setting,
the greater the volume of the corresponding footage. Mixing various volumes of
the footages lets you create your own distinctive organ sounds.

Auto Accompaniment
The auto accompaniment feature puts a full backing band at your fingertips. To use it, all you have to do
is play the chords with your left hand as you perform and the selected accompaniment style matching
your music will automatically play along, instantly following the chords you play. With auto accompaniment, even a solo performer can enjoy playing with the backing of an entire band or orchestra.
The PSR-740/640 features a total of 160 styles or accompaniment patterns (style numbers 1 - 160) in a
variety of different musical genres. Try selecting some of the different styles (page 150) and play with the
auto accompaniment.

Accompaniment Sections
There are various types of Auto Accompaniment sections that allow you to vary the
arrangement of the accompaniment to match the song you are playing. They are: Intro,
Main (A, B, C, D), Fill-in (A, B, C, D) and Ending. By switching among them as you
play, you can easily produce the dynamic elements of a professional-sounding arrangement in your performance.

This is used for the beginning of the song. When the intro finishes playing, accompaniment shifts to the main section.
The length of the intro (in measures) differs depending on the selected style. The PSR740 also features two intros: INTRO and COUNT INTRO.
● MAIN Section
This is used for playing the main part of the song. It plays an accompaniment pattern of
several measures (2 - 4 measures), and repeats indefinitely until another section’s button
is pressed. There are 4 variations on the basic pattern, A - D and the auto accompaniment changes harmonically based on the chords you play with your left hand.
● FILL-IN Section
The fill-in sections let you add dynamic variations and breaks in the rhythm of the
accompaniment, to make your performance sound even more professional. Simply press
one of the MAIN/AUTO FILL (A, B, C, D) buttons as you play, and the selected fill-in
section plays automatically (AUTO FILL), spicing up the auto accompaniment. When the
fill-in is finished, it leads smoothly into the selected main section (A, B, C, D). There are
four variations for the fill-in sections, each specially programmed to match the selected
main section.
● ENDING Section
This is used for the ending of the song. When the ending is finished, the auto accompaniment stops automatically. The length of the ending (in measures) differs depending on
the selected style. The PSR-740 also features two endings: ENDING and SIMPLE
ENDING .

Accompaniment Track Muting
The PSR-740/640 has eight accompaniment tracks — RHYTHM SUB, RHYTHM MAIN, BASS, CHORD 1,
CHORD 2, PAD, PHRASE 1, and PHRASE 2 — that you can control to modify the “orchestration” and therefore
the overall sound of the accompaniment. When a style is selected, the icons corresponding to the tracks which
contain data for any section of that style will light.
Individual accompaniment tracks can be turned OFF (muted) or ON by pressing the TRACK buttons (9 - 16)
corresponding to the target tracks. The [M] icon will appear when a track is muted. By turning the tracks OFF and
ON in different combinations, you can create various arrangements from a single accompaniment style.
Track contents
● RHYTHM SUB, RHYTHM MAIN
These are the main rhythm tracks. The RHYTHM tracks produce
the drum and percussion sounds.

● CHORD 1, CHORD 2
These tracks provide the rhythmic chordal accompaniment
required by each style. You’ll find guitar, piano, and other chordal
instruments here.
● PAD
This track plays long chords where necessary, using sustained instruments such as
strings, organ, choir.
● PHRASE 1, PHRASE 2
This is where the musical embellishments reside.
The PHRASE tracks are used for punchy brass stabs, arpeggiated chords, and other
extras that make the accompaniment more interesting.

• For a seventh chord, simultaneously press the
root key and a white key to its left.
• For a major chord, press the root key only.
Cm
Cm 7
• For a minor chord, simultaneously press the
root key and a black key to its left.
• For a minor-seventh chord, simultaneously
press the root key and both a white and black
key to its left.
The FINGERED 1 mode
The Fingered 1 mode lets you finger your own chords on the AUTO ACCOMPANIMENT section of the
keyboard (i.e. all keys to the left of and including the split-point key — normally 54) while the PSR-740/640
supplies appropriately orchestrated rhythm, bass and chord accompaniment in the selected style.
The FINGERED 1 mode recognizes the following chords:

• If you play any three
adjacent keys (including
black keys), the chord sound
will be cancelled and only
the rhythm instruments will
continue playing (CHORD

• Playing a single key or two
same root keys in the
adjacent octaves produces
accompaniment based only
on the root.
• A perfect fifth (1 + 5)
produces accompaniment
based only on the root and
fifth which can be used with
both major and minor
chords.
• The chord fingerings listed
are all in “root” position, but
other inversions can be used
— with the following
exceptions:
m7, m7b5, 6, m6, sus4,
aug, dim7, 7b5, 6(9),

• Inversion of the 7sus4 chord

• The AUTO ACCOMPANIMENT will sometimes not
change when related chords
are played in sequence (e.g.
some minor chords followed
by the minor seventh).
• Two-note fingerings will
produce a chord based on
the previously played chord.

Auto Accompaniment
The FINGERED 2 mode
This is essentially the same as the FINGERED 1 mode, described above, except that
the FINGERED 2 mode additionally allows you to specify the lowest note of each
chord — simply, the lowest note played in the AUTO ACCOMPANIMENT section of
the keyboard is used as the accompaniment bass note. This means you can specify “onbass” chords in which the main bass note for the chord is not the root of the chord. For
a C major chord, for example, you could use E (the third) or G (the fifth) as the bass
note rather than C.
C
C on E
C on G
The FULL KEYBOARD mode
When the FULL KEYBOARD Mode is selected, the PSR-740/640 will automatically
create appropriate accompaniment while you play just about anything using both
hands, anywhere on the keyboard. You do not have to worry about specifying the
accompaniment chords. The name of the detected chord will appear in the display.
• When the FULL KEYBOARD
mode is selected, the split
point setting (see below) for
the auto accompaniment will
be ignored.
The MULTI-FINGER mode
This is the default accompaniment mode. The MULTI-FINGER mode automatically
detects SINGLE FINGER or FINGERED 1 chord fingerings, so you can use either
type of fingering without having to switch fingering modes.
• If you want to play minor,
seventh or minor seventh
chords using the SINGLE
FINGER operation in the
MULTI-FINGER Mode,
always press the closest
white/black key(s) to the root
of the chord.
Accompaniment Split Point
This function lets you change the key range for playing accompaniment chords (the
auto accompaniment section).
The point on the keyboard that separates the auto accompaniment section and the righthand section of the keyboard is called the “split point.”
The initial (default) setting of the split point is F#2/G2; however, this can be set to any
key you wish. Refer to page 135 for instructions on how to set the split point.

This lets you play the music with some swing or change the “feel” of the beat by
making subtle shifts in the timing (clock) of the accompaniment style.
• Groove Type
This determines the type of groove timing change. For example, the “16 to 8”
setting converts all 16th notes to 8th-note timing.
• Groove Swing
This determines how much “swing” feel is applied to the accompaniment.
● Dynamics
This changes the velocity (or accent) of certain notes in the accompaniment
style to complement or enhance changes made to the Groove settings above.
• Dynamics Type
This determines the type of dynamic change applied to the accompaniment.
(Each type is a different “template” to which the timing of the velocity changes
has been programmed.)
• Dynamics Depth
This determines how strongly the selected dynamics type is applied to the
accompaniment (expressed as a percentage). Higher values produce a
stronger effect.
Every time the [GROOVE] button is pressed, the values for the above Groove and
Dynamics parameters are automatically set to best suit the selected style.

The Multi Pads
The PSR-740/640 Multi Pads can be used to play a number of short pre-recorded rhythmic and melodic
sequences that can be used to add impact and variety to your keyboard performances. You can also
record your own Multi Pad phrases as described in “Multi Pad Recording” on page 106.
Some pad phrases simply play back as programmed, while others are “chord match” types which, if the
Chord Match function is turned on, are automatically transposed to match chords played using the PSR740/640 auto accompaniment feature.

The reverb, chorus and DSP effects are divided into two different types or methods or
operation.
There are two types of digital effects: system effects and insertion effects.
● System Effects
Applies the effect to all of the parts input to the mixer. You can set the amount of effect
applied with the depth and return level parameters. Reverb and chorus are both system
effects.
● Insertion Effects
Applies the effect to only one designated part before inputting the signal to the mixer. You
can effectively use the digital effects by applying the desired effect to the specific part.

Master EQ (PSR-740)
Usually an equalizer is used to correct the sound output from amps or speakers to
match the special character of the room. The sound is divided into several frequency
bands, then by raising or lowering the level for each band, the correction is made.
Adjusting the sound you play according to the genre—classical music being more
refined, pops music more crisp, and rock music more dynamic—can also serve to draw
out the special characteristics of the music and make your performance more enjoyable.
The PSR-740 possesses a high grade five-band digital equalizer function. With this
function, a final effect—tone control—can be added to the output of your instrument.
Frequency Bands (5 bands)

HighMidGain
HighGain
• The range of each frequency
band can be changed by
transmitting the system
exclusive message from an
external MIDI device to the
PSR-740/640 (see page
163).
The digital equalizer adjusts the gain (amplitude change) in each of the five frequency
bands within a range of -12 to 0 to +12 decibels [dB].
The PSR-740 has five separate preset Master EQ settings (below) for instantly configuring the equalization for a variety of different music styles.

libraries, or find many other ways to make playing and using the PSR-740/640 more efficient.
● The PSR-740/640 is capable of playing back songs contained on the included
sample disk, as well as commercially available song data in the following formats,
indicated by the corresponding logos (page 9):
You can play back song files collected on these disks using the
voices defined in the GM standard.
You can play back songs using the XG format, an extension of the
GM standard that allows for much higher sound quality.
• Refer to page 9 for more
details on the logos.
You can play back song files collected on these disks using the
voices defined in Yamaha’s DOC format.
● The PSR-740/640 is compatible with style data contained on the included sample
disk, as well as commercially available disk styles in the following format,
indicated by the corresponding logo (page 9):
You can load and play with the style files collected on these disks.

Disk Operations
Using the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) and Floppy Disks
Be sure to handle floppy disks and treat the disk drive with
care. Follow the important precautions below.
■ Compatible Disk Type
3.5" 2DD and 2HD type floppy disks can be used.
■ Inserting/Ejecting Floppy Disks
● To insert a floppy disk into the disk drive:
• Hold the disk so that the label of the disk is facing
upward and the sliding shutter is facing forward,
towards the disk slot. Carefully insert the disk into
the slot, slowly pushing it all the way in until it clicks
into place and the eject button pops out.
■ Cleaning the Disk Drive Read/Write Head
● Clean the read/write head regularly. This instrument
employs a precision magnetic read/write head which,
after an extended period of use, will pick up a layer of
magnetic particles from the disks used that will
eventually cause read and write errors.
● To maintain the disk drive in optimum working order
Yamaha recommends that you use a commerciallyavailable dry-type head cleaning disk to clean the head
about once a month. Ask your Yamaha dealer about
the availability of proper head-cleaning disks.
● Never insert anything but floppy disks into the disk
drive. Other objects may cause damage to the disk
drive or floppy disks.
■ About the Floppy Disks
• When the PSR-740/640 is turned on, the LED below the floppy
disk slot will be lit indicating that the Disk Drive is ready to use.
● To eject a floppy disk:
• Before ejecting the disk, be sure to confirm that the
FDD is stopped (check if the DISK IN USE lamp is
off). Press the eject button slowly as far as it will go;
the disk will automatically pop out. When the disk is
fully ejected, carefully remove it by hand.
DISK
LOAD
SAVE
UTILITY
DISK IN USE
This lamp is always on when
the power is on, regardless of
the disk operation.
DISK IN USE
This lamp lights during disk
read/write operations, such
as when a disk has been
inserted, during recording,
playback, formatting, etc.
• If the eject button is pressed too quickly, or if it is not
pressed in as far as it will go, the disk may not eject
properly. The eject button may become stuck in a
half-pressed position with the disk extending from
the drive slot by only a few millimeters. If this
happens, do not attempt to pull out the partially
ejected disk, since using force in this situation can
damage the disk drive mechanism or the floppy disk.
To remove a partially ejected disk, try pressing the
eject button once again, or push the disk back into
the slot and then repeat the eject procedure.
● Never attempt to remove the disk or turn the power off
during recording, reading and playing back. Doing so
can damage the disk and possibly the disk drive.
● To handle floppy disks with care:
• Do not place heavy objects on a disk or bend or
apply pressure to the disk in any way. Always keep
floppy disks in their protective cases when they are
not in use.
• Do not expose the disk to direct sunlight, extremely
high or low temperatures, or excessive humidity, dust
or liquids.
• Do not open the sliding shutter and touch the
exposed surface of the floppy disk inside.
• Do not expose the disk to magnetic fields, such as
those produced by televisions, speakers, motors,
etc., since magnetic fields can partially or completely
erase data on the disk, rendering it unreadable.
• Never use a floppy disk with a deformed shutter or
housing.
• Do not attach anything other than the provided
labels to a floppy disk. Also make sure that labels
are attached in the proper location.
● To protect your data (write-protect tab):
• To prevent accidental erasure of important data,
slide the disk’s write-protect tab to the “protect”
position (tab open).
Write protect tab
ON (locked or
write protected)
Write protect tab
OFF (unlocked or
write enabled)
● Data backup
• For maximum data security Yamaha recommends
that you keep two copies of important data on
separate floppy disks. This gives you a backup if one
disk is lost or damaged.
● Be sure to remove the floppy disk from the disk drive
before turning off the power. A floppy disk left in the
drive for extended periods can easily pick up dust and
dirt that can cause data read and write errors.

Song Copy
This operation allows you to make backup copies of your important data. Primarily,
this will come in handy when you are recording and editing song data. For example, if
you are quantizing the track of a song (page 100) — which makes permanent changes
to the track — making a backup copy of the song allows you to restore the original
song data in case you’re not satisfied with the results of the quantization. Having a
dedicated backup disk for every song you work on is a good idea. In this way, you can
save a new copy of the song each time you make an important edit to it.
Copying song data from one floppy disk to another
Prepare a backup disk by formatting it. One file can be copied at a time. As shown in
the illustration below, first copy the desired file on the disk to internal memory, then
copy it to the destination disk.

Vocal Harmony (PSR-740)
This extraordinarily powerful feature uses advanced voice-processing technology to automatically produce vocal harmony based on a single lead vocal. Four distinct harmony modes as well as an extensive
selection of preset harmony types are provided. In addition to straightforward harmony, the PSR-740
also lets you change the apparent gender of the harmony and/or lead vocal sound. For example, if you
are a male singer, you can have the PSR-740 automatically generate a two-part female backup. A
comprehensive set of parameters gives you exceptionally precise and flexible control over the vocal
harmony sound.
Setting up
1
2
3
4
Set the INPUT VOLUME control to “MIN.”
Connect a microphone to the MIC/LINE
IN jack of the PSR-740.
• A standard dynamic
microphone with an
impedance of about 250
ohms is recommended. (The
PSR-740 does not support
phantom-powered
condenser microphones.)
Set the MIC/LINE panel switch to “MIC.”
Adjust the INPUT VOLUME control while singing into the
microphone.
Use the SIGNAL and OVER indicators to determine the
appropriate setting.
With the INPUT VOLUME control at the minimum, sing
or talk into the microphone at the highest expected volume. Gradually bring the control up toward “MAX” so
that the SIGNAL indicator is lit and the OVER indicator flashes occasionally.
Then reduce the INPUT VOLUME just enough to keep the OVER indicator
from flashing. This should be the optimum level setting
• If the OVER indicator lights
regardless of the INPUT
VOLUME setting, the output
level of the microphone (or
other source) is probably too
high. Compensate by
reducing the output level of
the source.
Using the “LINE” setting
Normally, since you will be using a microphone, you may never need to use the “LINE”
setting. However, this may come in handy if you want to use a pre-recorded source (on CD
or cassette tape) with the vocal harmony feature. (For best results, the source should be a
single vocal only; any other singers and instruments in the mix could produce unexpected or
undesired results.)
CAUTION
To do this:
1 Set the INPUT VOLUME control to “MIN.”
2
82
Connect the source to the MIC/LINE IN jack.
Use a stereo-to-mono cable or a “Y” cable to
combine the left- and right-channel output
signals from the source device for input to
the PSR-740’s mono MIC/LINE IN jack.
CD player, etc.
3
Set the MIC/LINE panel switch to “LINE.”
4
Adjust the INPUT VOLUME control.
Play the source at the highest expected volume, and adjust the INPUT VOLUME control
to get the optimum input level (as in the “Setting Up” instructions above).
• Never use the “MIC”
setting with a line level
signal (CD player, cassette
deck, etc.). Doing this
could damage the PSR-740
and its input functions.

Pickup of extraneous
sounds from the microphone can cause distorted
Vocal Harmony sound.
• Separate the microphone
from the instrument’s
speakers as much as
possible.
Sing into the microphone.
Play the keyboard while singing into the microphone.
The Vocal Harmony effect can be controlled by the chords you play. How you
use chords to control the effect depends on the Vocal Harmony settings. Here
are some examples. (For more details, see page 85.)
● When the Harmony mode is set to VOCODER and the
Harmony part is set to UPPER:
Play the keys with your right hand while you sing. The Vocal
Harmony effect changes chords and notes according to what
you play above the auto accompaniment split point.
● When the Harmony mode is set to CHORDAL:
First, turn on the auto accompaniment (page 35) to start the
accompaniment. Play the keys with your left hand while you
sing. The Vocal Harmony effect changes chords and notes
according to what you play below the auto accompaniment
split point (in the auto accompaniment section of the
keyboard).
The Vocal Harmony effect features various settings, including the harmony type, the
quality of the harmony voice and the way in which chords affect the Vocal Harmony.
5
• If you experience distorted or
out-of-tune sound from the
Vocal Harmony feature, your
vocal microphone may be
picking up extraneous
sounds (other than your
voice) — the Auto
Accompaniment sound from
the PSR-740, for example. In
particular, bass sounds can
cause mistracking of the
Vocal Harmony feature.
The solution to this problem
is to ensure that as little
extraneous sound as
possible is picked up by your
vocal microphone:
• Sing as closely to the
microphone as possible.
• Use a uni-directional
microphone.
• Turn down the MASTER
VOLUME, ACMP volume
or SONG volume control.
Press the [REVERB], [DSP4] and [TALK] buttons (to turn the
respective functions on or off as desired).

Vocal Harmony (PSR-740)
About the parameters
● Vocal Harmony Type
A total of 50 Vocal Harmony types are available, letting you select from a wide range of
harmony effects that can be applied to your voice. For details, see the Vocal Harmony Type
List on page 158.
● Lead Gender Type
This determines the vocal character (or gender) of the harmony effect, selectable from the
following types:
• OFF ............... The voice character of the harmony does not change.
• UNISON ......... The harmony voice is changed in gender to some point between male
and female.
• MALE ............. The gender of the harmony voice is changed to male.
• FEMALE ........ The gender of the harmony voice is changed to female.
● Pitch Correction
Even if the pitch of your voice is slightly “off,” you can use this to automatically correct the
pitch of your voice, ensuring that it matches with the harmony notes. Pitch Correction cannot
be set when the Lead Gender Type is off, or when the Vocal Harmony mode is set to Detune.
● Pitch to Note
This function allows you to have a selected instrument voice sound along with and at the
same pitch as your own voice. Select the part you wish to be controlled by your voice.
● Harmony Part
The Vocal Harmony effect is controlled by the notes you play. This parameter lets you
determine which notes (keyboard position, accompaniment or song data) will control the
harmony. Harmony Part can only be set when the Vocal Harmony mode is set to Vocoder.
• OFF ............... No harmony is applied.
• UPPER .......... Notes played on the right side of the keyboard from the split point control
the harmony.
• LOWER ......... Notes played on the left side of the keyboard from the split point control
the harmony.
● Song Track
When playing back a song from disk, the note data recorded to the assigned song track
control the harmony.
Vocal Harmony Modes
All of the Vocal Harmony types fall into one of four basic categories, or “modes,” which produce
harmony in different ways. Although the mode cannot be set directly, since it is fixed for each
Vocal Harmony type, the appropriate mode is selected automatically when the type is selected.
The harmony effect is dependent on the selected harmony mode and part, and this parameter
determines how the harmony is applied to your voice. The four modes are described below.
● Chordal
In the Style mode, chords played in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard control
the harmony. In the Song mode, chords contained in song data control the harmony.
● Vocoder
The harmony notes are determined by the notes you play on the keyboard (VOICE R1, R2,
L).
• When selecting and playing
back a song containing Vocal
Harmony data, the Vocal
Harmony type is selected
automatically. However, if
you change the type from the
panel while the song is
selected, the manually
selected harmony type
overrides the type specified
in the song data.
● Chromatic
This mode automatically produces a harmony at a fixed pitch interval from that of your voice,
and is applied regardless of the harmony part or the notes you play on the keyboard (or song
data).
● Detune
This mode automatically produces a slightly “detuned” pitch compared to your voice, creating
a rich chorusing effect. It is applied regardless of the harmony part or the notes you play on
the keyboard (or song data).

● Total Volume ........................ This determines the volume or level of the PSR-740 (not
including the microphone input) over a range of -20 dB - 0
dB.
● DSP 4 Type .......................... This determines the effect type for the DSP 4 effect, which is
applied especially to the microphone sound. The type can
also be set in the Multi Effect display. When the [TALK]
button is turned off, the DSP 4 type set in the Multi Effect
display is recalled.
● Vocal Harmony Type ........... This is the same parameter as the Vocal Harmony type
described on page 85. When the [TALK] button is turned on,
the current type setting is recalled.
● Pan, Reverb Depth, ............. The Pan, Reverb Depth and Chorus Depth settings are the

The PSR-740/640 provides two different ways to record: Quick Recording and Multi
Track Recording.
● About Multi Track Recording
In Multi Track Recording, you determine the track assignments (as shown above)
before recording. Several tracks can be recorded simultaneously. In addition to
being able to record to empty tracks, you can also re-record tracks that already
contain recorded data.
● About Quick Recording
In Quick Recording, you can quickly record without having to worry about the
track assignments above. Quick Recording automatically makes track assignments according to the simple rules below.
• When Record method is set to “MELODY”
Your keyboard performances (VOICE R1, R2, L) are recorded to tracks
1 - 3.
• When Record method is set to “ACMP”
The auto accompaniment parts are recorded to tracks 9 - 16.
• When Record method is set to “MELODY + ACMP”
Your keyboard performances (VOICE R1 and R2) are recorded to tracks
1 - 2 and the auto accompaniment parts are recorded to tracks 9 -16.
The quick recording method is different from the multi recording method but for both
of them, the recorded data is recorded on tracks 1–16.
If you wish to re-record a User song that was originally recorded by the Easy
Recording method, use Multi Track Recording.
The following notes and
cautions are important
points for you to keep in
mind as you record.
• Using Metronome function
(page 134) can make your
recording sessions much
more efficient.
• Using Registration Memory
(page 62) can make your
recording sessions much
more efficient, since various
settings (such as voices,
etc.) can be recalled by a
single button press.
When the record mode is
engaged, the Registration
Memory Freeze function will
be turned on (it cannot be
turned off while the record
mode is engaged).
• When the record mode is
engaged, the Synchro Stop
function will be turned off (it
cannot be turned on while
the record mode is
engaged).
• Whenever you record, any
previously recorded material
in the same track will be
erased.
• Song files on commercially
available disks which are not
write-protected can be
selected and recorded to
(edited) on the PSR-740/640.
If the song data is of a
different format from that of
the PSR-740/640 User
songs, the display prompts
you to convert the song data.
By pressing the [+/YES]
button, you can convert the
song data to the PSR-740/
640 format (compatible with
the PSR-740/640). Once the
conversion operation is
finished, the PSR-740/640
allows you to record.
• If the disk memory becomes
full while recording, an alert
message will appear on the
display and recording will
stop.
• Be careful to avoid the data
loss that will occur during
recording if the power is
turned off, the AC adaptor is
unplugged from the outlet.

Quantize
Quantize lets you “clean up” or “tighten” the timing of a previously recorded track.
For example, the following musical passage has been written with exact quarter-note
and eighth-note values.
Even though you think you may have recorded the passage accurately, your actual
performance may be slightly ahead of or behind the beat (or both!). Quantize allows
you to align all the notes in a track so that the timing is absolutely accurate to the
specified note value.

This function lets you make changes to various voice-related parameters (setup data)
for each track of a recorded song. The following parameters can be edited:
● Voice ........................... Assigns a voice number to the specified track.
● Volume ........................ Sets the volume of the specified track.
● Octave ......................... Shifts the pitch of the specified track up or down by one or
two octaves. A setting of “0” produces normal pitch.
● Pan .............................. Positions the sound of the specified track from left to right
in the stereo sound field. A setting of “-7” is full left, “7” is
full right, “0” is center, and all other settings are corresponding positions in between.
● Reverb depth ............... Sets the reverb depth for the specified track, and thus the
amount of reverb effect applied to that voice or track.
● Chorus depth .............. Sets the chorus depth for the specified track, and thus the
amount of chorus effect applied to that voice or track.
● DSP depth ................... Sets the DSP depth for the specified track, and thus the
amount of DSP effect applied to that voice or track.

Style Recording
The PSR-740/640 lets you record up to three original User styles which can be used for auto accompaniment in the same way as the preset styles. User Style data can also be saved to and loaded from floppy
disk (page 65).
You can create a User styles by using the internal style data as a starting point. Select a preset style that
is closest to the type of style you want to create, and record the auto accompaniment pattern to one track
of the section.
The PSR-740/640 provides two basic ways to record styles:
• Style Recording — Rhythm Track .................................................................................... page 112
• Style Recording — Bass/Phrase/Pad/Chord Tracks ........................................................ page 114
The four editing features below allow you to edit already recorded style data.
• Quantize ...........................................................................................................................
This function aligns the timing of the recorded note data to a specified value.
• Naming User Styles .........................................................................................................
This function lets you name your original styles.
• Clearing User Style Data .................................................................................................
This function is for clearing (deleting) or part of the recorded style.
• CTAB Parameters ............................................................................................................
These parameters determines how the pitch of the accompaniment is converted
when you play chords in the auto accompaniment section of the keyboard.

• Material recorded data is
retained in memory even
when the STANDBY switch is
turned off if an AC adaptor is
connected (page 159). It is
nevertheless a good idea to
save important data to floppy
disk so that you can keep
them indefinitely and build up
your own data library (page

Style Recording
■ About Recording User Styles
In recording a User song, the PSR-740/640 records your keyboard performance as
MIDI data. Recording of User styles, however, is done in a different way. Here are
some of the aspects in which style recording differs from song recording:
Loop Recording
Auto accompaniment repeats the accompaniment patterns of several measures
in a “loop,” and style recording is also done using loops. For example, if you start
recording with a two-measure main section, the two measures are repeatedly
recorded. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition (loop),
letting you record while hearing previously recorded material.
Overdub Recording
This method records new material to a track already containing recorded data,
without deleting the original data. In style recording, the recorded data is not
deleted, except when using functions such as Clear (page 118) and Drum
Cancel (page 113).
For example, if you start recording with a two-measure main section, the two
measures are repeated many times. Notes that you record will play back from
the next repetition, letting you overdub new material to the loop while hearing
previously recorded material.
Using Preset Styles
Preset style data
Copy
Internal memory for
User style recording
As shown in the chart at left, when you select the
internal preset style that is the closest to the type
of style you wish to create, the preset style data
will be copied to a special memory location for
recording.
You create (record) your new, original style by
adding or deleting data from the memory location.
All tracks (with the exception of the rhythm track)
must be cleared before recording (page 115).
■ Style File (Auto Accompaniment) Format
The Style File Format (SFF) combines all of Yamaha’s auto accompaniment knowhow into a single unified format.
By using the User style function, you can take advantage of the power of the SFF
format and freely create your own User styles.
Source pattern

(Low Limit, High Limit)
CTAB ......................................... page 119
The chart at the left indicates the process by
which the accompaniment is played back. (This
does not apply to the rhythm track.)
The source pattern in the chart is the original style
data. As explained on page 115, in style recording
this source pattern is recorded.
As shown in the chart at left, the actual output of
the accompaniment is determined by various
parameter settings and chord changes (playing
chords in the auto accompaniment section of the
keyboard) made to this source pattern.
Accompaniment
CTAB is a group of parameters which determines how the pitch of the source pattern
is converted when you play chords in the auto accompaniment section of the
keyboard. The User style function gives you exceptionally detailed and comprehensive control by allowing you to record the source pattern to each track and set the
CTAB parameters for each track. The PSR-740/640 lets you set the following four
CTAB parameters:
• Source Chord Root
• Source Chord Type
• Highest Key
• Note Range (Low Limit, High Limit)
For details about the CTAB parameters, see page 119.
The following notes and
cautions are important
points for you to keep in
mind as you record your
User styles.
• Make sure to clear at least
one of the three User styles
before recording a new User
style. Recording a new User
style cannot be started when
all three User styles have
recorded data.
• Be careful to avoid the data
loss that will occur during
recording if the power is
turned off, or the AC adaptor
is unplugged from the outlet.
• Using Registration Memory
(page 62) can make your
recording sessions much
more efficient, since various
settings (such as voices,
etc.) can be recalled by a
single button press.
When the record mode is
engaged, the Registration
Memory Freeze function will
be turned on (it cannot be
turned off while the record
mode is engaged).
• Using the Metronome
function (page 134) can
make your recording
sessions much more
efficient.
• In the Record Ready mode,
you can exchange or edit the
voice data in the recorded
tracks using Mixer on page
90 or Parameter Edit on
page 91.
• If the memory becomes full
while recording, an alert
message will appear on the
display and recording will
stop.
• Since recording is done in
measure units, you should
first select a style that has
the same number of
measures as the section you
intend to record.
• If none of the preset styles is
appropriate, select one that
has the same time signature
and number of measures as
the one you want to create,
then use the Clear function
(page 118) to clear all preset
data before entering your
own.
• “CTAB” is the abbreviation of
“Channel table”.

Quantize
Quantize lets you “clean up” or “tighten” the timing of a previously recorded track.
For example, the following musical passage has been written with exact quarter-note
and eighth-note values.
Even though you think you may have recorded the passage accurately, your actual
performance may be slightly ahead of or behind the beat (or both!). Quantize allows
you to align all the notes in a track so that the timing is absolutely accurate to the
specified note value.

CTAB Parameters
About the CTAB parameters
The CTAB parameters determine how the pitch of the recorded style changes in response to chords played in the
auto accompaniment section of the keyboard (when using auto accompaniment).
● NOTE LIMIT .................. Note range (Low Limit, High Limit) setteings
Set the note range (low and high limits) for the voices recorded on user style tracks. By
setting the note range, you can prevent unrealistic notes (such as high notes from a bass or
low notes from a piccolo) from being produced and have them shifted to an octave within the
note range.
• The pitch difference between
the Low Limit and High Limit
settings cannot be less than
one octave.
Example) When low limit is “C3” and high limit is “D4.”

● HIGH KEY ..................... Highest Key setting
Set the highest key (upper limit of the octaves) of the note transposing for the Source Chord
Root setting. The notes designated higher than the highest key will actually be played back in
the octave just below the highest key.
Example) When highest key is “F”.

What’s MIDI?
No doubt you have heard the terms “acoustic instrument” and “digital instrument.” In the world today, these are the
two main categories of instruments. Let’s consider an acoustic piano and a classical guitar as representative acoustic
instruments. They are easy to understand. With the piano, you strike a key, and a hammer inside hits some strings
and plays a note. With the guitar, you directly pluck a string and the note sounds. But how does a digital instrument
go about playing a note?

Playing the keyboard
Based on playing information from the keyboard, a
sampling note stored in the tone generator is played
through the speakers.
Pluck a string and the body resonates
the sound.
As shown in the illustration above, in an electronic instrument the sampling note (previously recorded note) stored
in the tone generator section (electronic circuit) is played based on information received from the keyboard. So then
what is the information from the keyboard that becomes the basis for note production?
For example, let’s say you play a “C” quarter note using the grand piano sound on the PSR-740/640 keyboard.
Unlike an acoustic instrument that puts out a resonated note, the electronic instrument puts out information from
the keyboard such as “with what voice,” “with which key,” “about how strong,” “when was it pressed” and “when
was it released.” Then each piece of information is changed into a number value and sent to the tone generator.
Using these numbers as a basis, the tone generator plays the stored sampling note.
● Example of Keyboard Information
Voice number (with what voice)
Note number (with which key)
Note on (when was it pressed) and
note off (when was it released)
Velocity (about how strong)
01 (grand piano)
60 (C3)
Timing expressed numerically (quarter note)
120 (strong)

MIDI Functions
MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which allows electronic musical instruments to communicate with each other, by sending and receiving compatible Note, Control Change, Program
Change and various other types of MIDI data, or messages.
The PSR-740/640 can control a MIDI device by transmitting note related data and various types of controller data.
The PSR-740/640 can be controlled by the incoming MIDI messages which automatically determine tone generator
mode, select MIDI channels, voices and effects, change parameter values and of course play the voices
specified for the various parts.
MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: Channel messages and System messages. Below is an explanation
of the various types of MIDI messages which the PSR-740/640 can receive/transmit.
● Channel Messages
The PSR-740/640 is an electronic instrument that can handle 16 channels. This is
usually expressed as “it can play 16 instruments at the same time.” Channel messages transmit information such as Note ON/OFF, Program Change, for each of the
16 channels.
Message Name
Note ON/OFF
Program Change
Control Change

Messages which are generated when the keyboard is
played.
Each message includes a specific note number which corresponds to the key which is pressed, plus a velocity value
based on how hard the key is stuck.
Voice setting (control change bank select MSB/LSB setting)
Mixer, Parameter Edit setting (volume, pan pot, etc.)
● System Messages
This is data that is used in common by the entire MIDI system. System messages
include messages like Exclusive Messages that transmit data unique to each instrument manufacturer and Realtime Messages that control the MIDI device.

The messages transmitted/received by the PSR-740/640 are shown in the MIDI
Data Format and MIDI Implementation Chart on pages 163 and 178.
MIDI and TO HOST Terminals
In order to exchange MIDI data between multiple devices, each device must be connected by a cable.
There are two ways to connect: from the MIDI terminals of the PSR-740/640 to the
MIDI terminals of an external device using a MIDI cable, or from the TO HOST port
of the PSR-740/640 to the serial port of a personal computer using a special cable.
If you connect from the PSR-740/640 TO HOST terminal to a personal computer, the
PSR-740/640 will be used as a MIDI interface device, meaning that a specialized MIDI
interface device is not necessary.
In the rear panel of the PSR-740/640, there are two kinds of terminals, the MIDI
terminals and the TO HOST terminal.
● MIDI IN ......... Receives MIDI data from another MIDI device.
● MIDI OUT ..... Transmits the PSR-740/640’s keyboard information
as MIDI data to another MIDI device.
● TO HOST ..... Transmits and receives MIDI data to and from a
personal computer.
• When using the TO HOST
terminal to connect to a
personal computer using
Windows, a Yamaha MIDI
driver must be installed in
the personal computer. The
included disk contains the
Yamaha MIDI driver.
• Special MIDI cables (sold
separately) must be used for
connecting to MIDI devices.
They can be bought at music
stores, etc.
• Never use MIDI cables
longer than about 15 meters.
Cables longer than this can
pick up noise which can
cause data errors.

MIDI Functions
The PSR-740/640 is an electronic musical instrument which is capable of transmitting and receiving over sixteen
channels. Imagine that there are sixteen separate pipes in the connected MIDI cable. When transmitting MIDI data
from the PSR-740/640 to an external device, MIDI data is sent through the assigned pipe (or MIDI channel) and
transmitted to the external device.
For example, several tracks can be transmitted simultaneously, including the auto accompaniment data (as shown
below).

MIDI Data Compatibility
This section covers basic information on data compatibility: whether or not other MIDI devices can playback the data
recorded by PSR-740/640, and whether or not the PSR-740/640 can playback commercially available song data or song
data created for other instruments or on a computer.
Depending on the MIDI device or data characteristics, you may be able to play back the data without any problem,
or you may have to perform some special operations before the data can be played back. If you run into problems
playing back data, please refer to the information below.
Sequence format
The system which records song data is called “sequence format.”
Playback is only possible when the sequence format of the disk matches that of the MIDI device.
● SMF (Standard MIDI File)
This is the most common sequence format.
Standard MIDI Files are generally available as one of two types: Format 0 or Format 1. Many
MIDI devices are compatible with Format 0, and most commercially available software is recorded
as Format 0.
• The PSR-740/640 is compatible with both Format 0 and Format 1.
• Song data recorded on the PSR-740/640 is automatically recorded as SMF Format 0.
● ESEQ
This sequence format is compatible with many of Yamaha’s MIDI devices, including the Clavinova
series instruments. This is a common format used with various Yamaha software.
• The PSR-740/640 is compatible with ESEQ.
● XF
The Yamaha XF format enhances the SMF (Standard MIDI File) strandard with greater functionality and open-ended expandability for the future.
• The 740/640 is capable of displaying lyrics when an XF file containing lyric data is played.
● Style File
The Style File Format — SFF — is Yamaha’s original style file format which uses a unique
conversion system to provide high-quality automatic accompaniment based on a wide range of
chord types.
• The PSR-740/640 uses the SFF internally, reads optional SFF style disks, and creates SFF
styles using the Style recording feature.
Voice allocation format
With MIDI, voices are assigned to specific numbers, called “program numbers.” The numbering standard (order of
voice allocation) is referred to as the “voice allocation format.”
Voices may not play back as expected unless the voice allocation format of the song data matches that of the
compatible MIDI device used for playback.
● GM System Level 1
This is one of the most common voice allocation formats.
Many MIDI devices are compatible with GM System Level 1, as is most commercially
available software.
• The PSR-740/640 is compatible with GM System Level 1.
● XG
XG is a major enhancement of the GM System Level 1 format, and was developed by
Yamaha specifically to provide more voices and variations, as well as greater expressive
control over voices and effects, and to ensure compatibility of data well into the future.
• The PSR-740/640 is compatible with XG.
• Even if the devices and data
used satisfy all the
conditions above, the data
may still not be completely
compatible, depending on
the specifications of the
devices and particular data
recording methods.
● DOC
This voice allocation format is compaible with many of Yamaha’s MIDI devices, including the
Clavinova series instruments.
This is also a common format used with various Yamaha software.
• The PSR-740/640 is compatible with DOC.

MIDI Functions
Local Control
“Local Control” refers to the fact that, normally, the PSR-740/640 keyboard controls the
internal tone generator, allowing the internal voices to be played directly from the keyboard. This situation is “Local Control on” since the internal tone generator is controlled
locally by its own keyboard. Local control can be turned off, however, so that the keyboard does not play the internal voices, but the appropriate MIDI information is still
transmitted via the MIDI OUT connector when notes are played on the keyboard. At the
same time, the internal tone generator can respond to MIDI information received on channels set to the “XG/GM” mode via the MIDI IN connector. This means that while an
external MIDI sequencer, for example, plays the PSR-740/640 internal voices, an external tone generator can be played from the PSR-740/640 keyboard.

Press the [FUNCTION] button.
Select “Utility.”
Press the [NEXT] button.
Select a function.
Press the [NEXT] button.
Set the value.
The operations for each function corresponding to step #6 are covered in the following explanations.
Metronome
When this is set to “ON,” the metronome sounds at the set tempo for the following
conditions.
• Accompaniment playback
• Song playback
• Synchro start waiting
• Record standby
• Recording
• Turn Metronome ON or OFF with the data dial, the [+/YES] button or the
[-/NO] button.
• The Metronome cannot be
turned on when free-tempo
song data is selected in the
Song mode.
The tempo setting of some
commercially available songs
is fixed. These songs are
called “free-tempo software.”
When playing back freetempo song data on the
PSR-740/640, the Tempo
display shows “- - -” and the
beat display does not flash.
Also, the measure number in
the display does not match
the actual measure number
of playback, and only gives
you an indication of how
much of the song has played
back.

Other Functions (Utility)
Part Octave
This determines the relative octave settings for the keyboard-played voices R1, R2 and
L.
• Select the part (R1, R2, L) by pressing one of the PART ON/OFF buttons
(VOICE R1, VOICE R2, VOICE L).
• Set the value with the data dial, the [+/YES] button or the [-/NO] button.
Master Tuning
The Master Tuning function sets the overall pitch of the PSR-740/640.
• Set the value with the data dial, the [+/YES] button or the [-/NO] button.
Scale Tuning
Scale tuning allows each individual note of the octave to be tuned over range from -64
to +63 cents in 1-cent increments (1 cent = 1/100th of a semitone). This makes it
possible to produce subtle tuning variations, or tune the instrument to totally different
scales (e.g. classic or Arabic scales).
The Accompaniment and Multi Pad sounds are affected by Scale Tuning.
• The scale tuning settings are
common to each octave on
the keyboard.
• Minus values can be entered
by using the number buttons
while holding the [-/NO]
button.
• Select the note to be tuned by pressing the [NEXT]/[BACK] button.
• Tune the selected note by using the data dial, the [+/YES] button, the
[-/NO] button or the number buttons [1]-[0].
Split Point
The point on the keyboard that separates the auto accompaniment section and the righthand section of the keyboard is called the “split point.”
• When the auto accompaniment is on, keys played to the left of the split point are
used for controlling the auto accompaniment (page 35).
• When the auto accompaniment is off, keys played to the left of the split point are
used for playing voice L (page 28).
• The default setting (factory
setting) is “F#2/G2.”
• Set the value with the data dial, the [+/YES] button or the [-/NO] button.
133
135
Other Functions (Utility)
Touch Sensitivity
The keyboard of the PSR-740/640 is equipped with a touch response feature that lets you
dynamically and expressively control the level of the voices with your playing strength —
just as on an acoustic instrument. The Touch Sensitivity parameter gives you detailed
control over the touch response feature by letting you set the degree of touch response.
• Set the value with the data dial, the [+/YES] button, the [-/NO] button or the
number buttons [1]-[0].
The greater the value, the more sensitive the keyboard is to your playing strength and the
more dynamic range that can be brought out of the voices.
A setting of “0” results in a fixed touch response, or no level change no matter how hard or
how soft you play the keys. (This setting is good for instrument sounds such as organ or
harpsichord, which normally do not have touch response.) You can also achieve the same
effect by turning touch response off with the [TOUCH] button on the panel (the indicator
turns off).
Voice Set
The VOICE SET feature brings out the best in each individual voice by automatically
setting a range of important voice-related parameters whenever an R1 panel voice is
selected. The parameters that may be set by the VOICE SET feature are listed below. This
function lets you turn VOICE SET on or off, as required.
● Voice Set Parameter List
• Voice R1 (Volume, octave, pan, reverb depth, chorus depth, DSP depth*)
• Voice R2 (Voice number, volume, octave, pan, reverb depth, chorus depth, DSP depth*)
• DSP on/off, type, return level and FAST/SLOW on/off
• Harmony Type, Volume, Part
• DSP1-3 dry/wet (PSR-740)
• Multi Effect connection (PSR-740)
* PSR-640 only
• Turn Voice Set ON or OFF by using the data dial, the [+/YES] button or the
[-/NO] button.

Other Functions (Utility)
Footswitch
Various functions can be assigned to the footswitch connected to the SUSTAIN jack.
The polarity of the footswitch can also be changed.
• Select the Functions to be controlled by the footswitch.
Use the data dial, the
[+/YES] button or the [-/NO]
button.
Press the [NEXT] button.
• Set the polarity of the footswitch NORMAL or REVERSE.
Use the data dial, the
[+/YES] button or the [-/NO]
button.
● Functions controlled by the footswitch
SUSTAIN
When you press the foot switch,
sustain is applied to the keyboard
notes.
For “SUSTAIN,” if you press and hold the foot switch here,
all the notes shown will be sustained.
SOSTENUTO
When you press the foot switch,
the sostenuto effect is applied to
the keyboard notes.
• When using the “REGISTRATION+” or “REGISTRATION-” functions with the
fooswitch, make sure to
make the appropriate setting
(“REGISTRATION+” or
“REGISTRATION-”) to all of
the Registrations you intend
to use with the footswitch.
For “SOSTENUTO,” if you press and hold the foot switch
here, only the first note will be sustained (the note that
you played and held when pressing the foot switch).
SOFT
REGISTRATION+
REGISTRATION-
START/STOP
SYNCHRO STOP
BASS HOLD
BREAK
TAP TEMPO
When you press the foot switch, the soft effect is applied to the keyboard notes.
When you press the foot switch, a register with one number higher is recalled.
For example, if you step on the foot switch with bank 1-3 recalled, 1-4 will be
recalled, then next 2-1 will be recalled.
When you press the foot switch, a register with one number lower is recalled. For
example, if you step on the foot switch with bank 3-2 recalled, 3-1 will be
recalled, then next 2-4 will be recalled.
Pressing the footswitch has the same effect as pressing the START/STOP button
on the panel.
Pressing the footswitch has the same effect as pressing the SYNC STOP button
on the panel.
The bass root note will be held as long as you press the footswitch.
When you press the foot switch, accompaniment will stop. Releasing the switch
with the foot will cause it to play again from the next measure.
Pressing the footswitch has the same effect as pressing the TAP TEMPO button
on the panel.
● Polarity
This parameter lets you configure the foot switch response of the PSR-740/640
to match that of the particular foot switch you are using. If the foot switch works
in the opposite way (i.e., pressing the foot switch has no effect, but releasing it
does), try changing this setting. The default setting is “NORMAL.”
135
137
Other Functions (Utility)
Foot Volume
Various functions can be assigned to the foot volume connected to the FOOT VOL.
jack. The polarity of the foot controller can also be changed.
• Select the Functions to be controlled by the foot volume.
Use the data dial, the
[+/YES] button or the [-/NO]
button.
Press the [NEXT] button.
• Set the polarity of the foot volume to “NORMAL” or “REVERSE.”
Use the data dial, the
[+/YES] button or the [-/NO]
button.

Other Functions (Utility)
Pitch Bend Range
This determines the maximum pitch bend range for the PITCH BEND wheel.
The range is from “0” to “12.” Each increment corresponds to one semitone.
• Set the Pitch Bend Range with the data dial, the [+/YES] button, the [-/NO]
button or the number buttons [1]-[0].
Modulation Wheel (PSR-740)
This lets you assign other functions to the MODULATION Wheel.
• Select a function with the data dial, the [+/YES] button or the [-/NO] button.
● Modulation Wheel function list
MODULATION
Applies vibrato effects to the voices played from the keyboard.

Appendix
Voice List
PSR-740/640 Voices
The PSR-740/640 actually includes two voice sets: the “panel” voices and percussion kits, and the XG voices. The panel voices
include 267 “pitched” voices (223 “pitched” voices for PSR-640) and 13 drum kits (12 drum kits for PSR-640), while the XG voice
set includes 480 voices.
The panel voices are specially recorded and programmed voices exclusive to the PSR-740/640 and other PortaTone instruments.
The XG voices conform to Yamaha’s XG format; they also conform to the GM (General MIDI) standard. This allows you to
accurately play back any GM- or XG-compatible song data directly on the PSR-740/640 itself, without having to change voices or
make special settings. It also allows you to record songs for other GM- or XG-compatible instruments, and have them play back on
those instruments as intended.

● Maximum Polyphony
The PSR-740 has 64-note maximum polyphony and the PSR-640 has 32. Auto Accompaniment uses a number of the available
notes, so when Auto Accompaniment is used the total number of notes that can be played on the keyboard is correspondingly
reduced. The same applies to the Voice R2, Voice L, Multi Pad, and Song functions. When the maximum polyphony is exceeded,
notes are played using last-note priority.
• The Voice List includes
MIDI program change
numbers for each voice.
Use these program change
numbers when playing the
PSR-740/640 via MIDI from
an external device.
• When the sustain or
sostenuto pedal functions
are being used (page 137),
some voices may sound
continuously or have a long
decay after the notes have
been released while the
pedal is held.

■ PSR-740
● Reverb (System effect)
Reverb effect type/depth can be set by panel operation.
When you select a different style, the appropriate reverb type will be selected accordingly.
• Although not all the effect
settings cannot be made by
operating the PSR-740 panel
manually, some of them may
be accessible through MIDI.
Refer to the MIDI data format
for details.
● Chorus (System effect)
Chorus effect type/depth can be set by panel operation.
When you select a different style, the appropriate chorus type will be selected accordingly.
● DSP (System/Insertion effect)
DSP effect type/depth can be set by a panel operation in the Style record mode.
When you select a different style, the appropriate chorus type will be selected accordingly.
● DSP1 - 3 (Insertion effect)
The PSR-740 has a multi effect system featuring three separate DSP effect blocks.
Multi effect on/off status, type and depth can be set by panel operation.
● DSP4
DSP4 is the effect for the microphone sound.

Description
An extra note is added to the note played on the keyboard to produce duet type harmony.
A parallel voice is produced a fifth above the note played on the keyboard.
One note is added above the note played on the keyboard for a country-style harmony feel.
Two notes are added below the note played on the keyboard for three-part harmony.
Three or four notes are added to the note played on the keyboard to produce four or fivenote chords.
Three harmony notes are generated to produce a four-note chord.
Similar to the preceding type, but depending on the chords played this type will sometimes
produce a more colorful sound.
Four-note chords with open voice (large intervals between the notes). The result is a very
“open” sound. Since the harmony notes can be as much as two octaves below the note
played on the keyboard, avoid playing in the lower registers.
One note is added an octave below the note played on the keyboard.
The notes and assignments are the same as in the Block type, but the notes are
arpeggiated.

Data Backup & Initialization
■ Data Backup
Except for the data listed below, all PSR-740/640 panel settings are reset to their initial
settings whenever the power is turned on. The data listed below are backed up — i.e.
retained in memory — as long as an AC adaptor is connected.
• User Style data .................................................... page 110

The data listed above will be retained in memory for about a week even if the AC
adaptor is not connected. All the data will be reset if the power remains off for longer
than about a week. To ensure that your backed-up data are maintained, connect the AC
adaptor and turn the power on for a few minutes at least once a week.
It is nevertheless the best way to save important data to floppy disk so that you can
keep them indefinitely. All the data listed above can be saved to floppy disk by selecting “All” as the file type (page 69).
■ Data Initialization
All data can be initialized and restored to the factory preset condition by turning on the
power while holding the highest (rightmost) white key on the keyboard. “Now initializing the internal memory...” will appear briefly on the display.
CAUTION
• All registration and User
Style/Pad memory data,
plus the other settings
listed above, will be erased
and/or changed when the
data initialization
procedure is carried out.
• Carrying out the data
initialization procedure will
usually restore normal
operation if the PSR-740/
640 freezes or begins to
act erratically for any
reason.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE/SOLUTION
• The speakers produce a “pop” sound whenever
the power is turned ON or OFF.
This is normal and is no cause for alarm.
• When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the PortaTone may produce interference.
To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it further away from the PortaTone.
• No sound results when the keyboard is played.
• The R1/R2/L voice volume (Mixer) settings could be set too low. Make sure the
voice volumes are set at appropriate levels (pages 90).
• The Local Control function could be turned off. Make sure Local Control is turned
on (page 132).
• Check whether the naming function of Registration Memory or song recording
(page 62) is called up in the display or not. If the naming function is active, the
PSR-740/640 does not produce any sound, even when the keys are played.
• Not all simultaneously-played notes sound.
• Auto Accompaniment seems to “skip” when the
keyboard is played.
You are probably exceeding the maximum polyphony of the PSR-740/640 . The
PSR-740 can play up to 64 notes (32 notes for PSR-640) at the same time —
including voice R2, voice L, auto accompaniment, song, and multi pad notes. Notes
exceeding this limit will not sound.
• Nothing happens or nothing seems to function,
even when pressing a panel button. For example,
pressing the [START] button does not start the
accompaniment.
Make sure that Disk mode is engaged.
In the Disk mode, no panel operations can be executed (except for disk operations).
Exit from the display by pressing the [EXIT] button.
• The accompaniment or song does not play back
even when pressing the [START/STOP] button.
• The Multi Pads do not play back, even when one
of the MULTI PAD buttons is pressed.
The MIDI Clock may be set to “EXTERNAL.” Make sure it is set to “INTERNAL”
(page 132).
• The auto accompaniment does not start, even
when Synchro Start is in standby condition and a
key is pressed.
You may be trying to start accompaniment by playing a key in the right-hand range
of the keyboard. To start the accompaniment with Synchro Start, make sure to play
a key in the left-hand (accompaniment) range of the keyboard.
• The following buttons related to the auto
accompaniment do not function.
• [SYNC START] button
• [SYNC STOP] button
• [ACMP ON/OFF] button
• REGISTRATION MEMORY [FREEZE] button
Check whether the Song mode (page 25) is selected or not. When the Song mode
is active, none of the auto accompaniment functions can be used.
• Certain notes sound at the wrong pitch.
Make sure that the scale tuning value for those notes is set to “0” (page 135).
• Auto accompaniment chords are recognized
regardless of the split point or where chords are
played on the keyboard.
Check whether the fingering mode is set to “Full” or not. If the Full fingering mode is
selected, chords are recognized over the entire range of the keyboard, irrespective
of the split point setting.
• The Harmony function does not operate.
• Harmony cannot be turned on when the Full Keyboard fingering mode is selected
or if a percussion kit voice is selected. Select an appropriate fingering mode or
voice.
• Harmony cannot be turned on when a drum kit is selected for the voice R1.
• MIDI data is not transmitted or received, even
when MIDI cables are connected properly.
The MIDI terminals can only be used when the HOST SELECT switch is set to
“MIDI.” All other settings (“Mac,” “PC-1” and “PC-2”) are for direct transmission/
reception with a computer.
• If you experience distorted or out-of-tune sound
from the Vocal Harmony feature, your vocal
microphone may be picking up extraneous
sounds (other than your voice) — the Auto
Accompaniment sound from the PSR-740, for
example. In particular, bass sounds can cause
mistracking of the Vocal Harmony feature.
The solution to this problem is to ensure that as little extraneous sound as possible
is picked up by your vocal microphone:
• Sing as closely to the microphone as possible.
• Use a directional microphone.
• Turn down the MASTER VOLUME, ACMP volume, or SONG volume control.
• Separate the microphone from the instrument’s speakers as much as possible.

When a Voice, including VOICE BANK, is changed, set the BANK SELECT and Program
Change Message, and transmit in the following order, BANK SELECT MSB, LSB,
PROGRAM CHANGE.
• MODULATION controls the Vibrato Depth.
• PORTAMENTO TIME controls the Pitch Change Speed when the Portamento Switch = ON.
0 being the shortest time, and 127 being the longest.
• PANPOT changes the value for the melody voice and rhythm voice in relation to the preset value.
• Portamento time is fixed to 0 when the PORTAMENTO CONTROL is used.
• HARMONIC CONTENT applies adjustment to the resonance value that is set by the voice.
This parameter specifies relative change with the value of 64 producing 0 adjustment.
As values get higher the sound becomes increasingly eccentric.
Note that for some voices the effective parameter range is narrower than the legal parameter range.
• RELEASE TIME applies adjustment to the envelope release time set by the voice.
This parameter specifies relative change with the value of 64 producing 0 adjustment.
• ATTACK TIME applies adjustment to the envelope attack time set by the voice.
This parameter specifies relative change with the value of 64 producing 0 adjustment.
• BRIGHTNESS applies adjustment to the cut-off frequency set by the voice.
This parameter specifies relative change with the value of 64 producing 0 adjustment. Lower
voices produce a softer sound.
For some voices the effective parameter range is narrower than the legal parameter range.
